Anytime you want to be depressed read Dalrymple

I've been reading articles by Theodore Dalrymple for years. He's now retired, but he used to be a doctor for many years with the British National Health Service and before that a doctor at a clinic in Africa. He's an excellent writer who unfailingly makes depressing subjects interesting.

The link below will take you to his latest article in City-Journal Magazine. If you like what you see you can find years of his writings by following the links to the author archives at

Any of his old articles make good lunch time reading if you can stomach the sorts of things a mental health doctor is confronted with in a free clinic in a British slum.
